It May Not Be What You Think It Is

I have epilepsy and founded Purple day but I do other things to. I like to paint and play with my friends. I like to watch movies and do jig saw puzzles. I also like to hang out with my family.

I am an actress and have been in commercials, background for movies and had the lead in a short film called Ugly Girl. Oh ya, when I was in New York we were in the background for a part of Gossip Girl. I am also a cheerleader and Girl Guide.

About Epilepsy, there are all different kinds of epilepsy and seizures (like convulsions which I don’t have). I have complex partial seizures. Sometimes when I have a seizure I get really sad or feel scared for no reason, just like that in a quick of a snap, than I get really tired.

Sometimes my seizures make me zone out. Sometimes when I go to school I have a seizure and I sometimes miss things and don’t quite know what is going on or what to do, but my teacher helps me.
